Basingstoke and Deane has lots to offer visitors. If you have some spare time between enjoying performances, why not take in a bit of shopping? You can find Festival Place
, The Malls
and The Top of Town all walking distance from each other.
Or if you’d rather enjoy the outdoors, take a stroll in Glebe Gardens
or War Memorial Park
both are within walking distance of the town centre. Eastrop Park
has lots for the kids including a play park, paddling pool and boating lake. You could also explore the Streets Alive
walking trail. Basingstoke Festival has been transforming street planters, telecoms boxes and benches with work from local artists into an exciting outdoor art gallery.
Visit the Love Basingstoke website for other ideas and find details of other events that are happening at the same time as the festival.
